Every faith has a story of how the world ends. It is hard coded in all mythologies. But when the end of the universe actually happened, it was unlike anything ever predicted or imagined.
The Divine Beings who survived the Reaping crafted a place of survival for their people and ushered them to its safety. They called it Sanctum.
Gone are the once glorious civilizations of myth and legend. Gone are the heroes of ancient days: Hippolyta, Beowulf, Gilgamesh, Cleopatra, and Arthur. These stories are now the foundations of civilizations seeking to rebuild in the wake of destruction. Here, in Sanctum, myths are made real, some crafted from the clay of this new world; others pulled from the dreams and nightmares of the old. From minds of Human and Orc, Dwarf and Fae.
For five thousand years, the survivors of the Reaping have tried to reassemble some shadow of the former glory. And yet, cultures war with one another, seeking supremacy and control while their chosen Divine Beings continue their ancient battles in the heavens.
All the while the scholars watch the moonless sky, dreading any portent that the catastrophe they call the Reaping has returned once more.
